I am looking to display my computer on both my television and my computer monitor for both mirroring the same image. I want to buy a cheap graphics card that will help me do the trick as my integrated graphics for some reason displays horribly when I use the HDMI.

I was looking at a XFX HD-667X-ZHF3 Radeon HD 6670 and was wondering if I will be able to run the vga to my monitor and and hdmi to my tv and have the same display on both of the screens with this graphics card. I don't play many graphic intensive games but I do game sometimes so I want to make sure it can handle displaying low graphics games on both devices. Here is a link to it for the specs: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-hd667xzhf3

Thank you for your time and answers!

I currently have the same graphics card (or something very similar) and I can tell you from experience that it works great for low intense gaming. It can also take on some high end games on low settings. As far as the display goes, most people go with dual monitor display which has separate images on 2 monitors. But if you want to go with one display, it doesn't require any extra power from the graphics card because you are just copying the output (the gpu doesn't have to create the same image twice) what you do need is a vga cable and an hdmi cable (the listed graphics card supports both outputs)
